Ms Onagoruwa appeared before the committee to respond to some petitions written by staff of the organization over wrongful termination of appointment.

Rather than acknowledge and allow Ms Onagoruwa react to the petitions, the Chairman of the committee, Ayo Akinyelure said the senate can no longer recognize her as the substantive Director General based on a resolution by the senate which recommended her removal from office.

The senate committee who investigated the privatization of the nation’s assets recommended the sack of Ms Onagoruwa for gross incompetence in the management of the bureau.

The panel also indicted her over her role in the sale of the Federal Government’s five percent residual shares in Eleme Petrochemical Company.
